The following topics were discussed during the October 22nd Council meeting.

Municipal Strategic Plan

Council spent part of the meeting finalizing and approving the Municipal Strategic Plan. The process was started in August of 2018 when Council directed Administration that they wished to undertake completing a plan. Administration engaged in eight strategic planning sessions over the past year and the last session was spent prioritizing different goals and strategies and also included ensuring everyone could support the plan. The process has now been completed and adopted by council. With the adoption from council, Administration will now begin to share the plan as well as determine possible initiatives and actions for each strategy within the plan. The strategic plan will also be pivotal in evaluating which Budget 2020 initiatives are recommended.

Montem Resources

Councillor Sygutek addressed council that she has had people come to her asking about certain areas of back country being blocked off with no trespassing signs. Due to council not knowing all that Montem is currently doing in the area, Councillor Sygutek asked for a formal request that Montem Resources comes to council and give a full presentation on what they're doing, what they're shutting down and what the plans are.

“It's in our community and we have a right to know what's going on.”

Councillor Sygutek made a motion asking for Montem Resources to come and give a presentation to council as soon as possible to provide council more information on the work that is being done and the motion was carried.

Downtown Coleman

Councillor Ward brought up that there has been some confusion with parking at the post office. Council discussed ways to make the public aware of where they can park at the post office. Councillor Sygutek also mentioned that there was a point in time where a young child and a parent were walking on the side walk when a vehicle pulled up to park. and was fairly close to hitting them. There was also another incident where a truck tried to get around some of the construction and ended up getting stuck in a flower bed. After all of the discussion, council decided that at this point in time, it's important for the public to realize that the work isn't finished and certain parts of the project are still needing to be completed including line painting for marking parking spots. The parking in front of the post office is designed for parallel parking and lines will be painted there when the weather cooperated. Some concrete work is still needing to be completed as well and the projected completion date for the project is November 15th.
